I'm all about that glow!


The bag design is cute but simple.


Info sheet.


Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast ($15.00) - If you follow my personal twitter, you would know I had an issue with this making my hair greasier than it was before and was really cold when it came out, unnecessarily cold. I'm not sure if the formula changed or if my bottle is bad or what, but it didn't make my hair look better.

Chloé (Fleur de Parfum) (Sample) - A fresh, floral and nice perfume. It's a little too flowery for my liking but it's not too strong to wear if I spray it a bit before I actually need to wear it and let it wear off a bit. 

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick (Golden Pink) ($6.00) - I really love this shadow stick. The formula is really nice, it wears well but it does wear off quickly. I mostly love this as an inner corner highlight!


GLAMGLOW GLOWSTARTER Mega Illuminating Moisturizer (Nude Glow) ($6.92) - I might only ever try GLAMGLOW products in sample sizes, but I'll love them when I get to try them. I love the way this moisturizer makes my face feel but the tint is a little too dark for me. 

Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm ($7.20) - This is supposed to be an anti-aging skin finisher and a makeup primer all in one. I like it as a skin finisher but not as a primer (I need a pore filling one, this one doesn't fill pores). It moisturizes my face without leaving it all greasy and such. I can't validate the anti-aging properties, though, this is too small of a sample to test that.

benefit's Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter ($7.27) - I really like this highlighter, as long as it's applied with your finger. If you use it as a stick, it budges and smudges your foundation (and everything else on your face). It's a nice champagne/gold shade that works with my skin tone in the Summer (winter me is too pale for this color).


Swatches L-R: Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Stick, benefit's Watt's Up!.


This bag was valued at $42.39, well over the cost of the actual bag. I really liked most of the products and the one that I had a problem with, I honestly think it was a bad bottle and not a formula change. Overall, it was a pretty good bag.

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
